What is RADIO BRENNPUNKT?
We Play Recorded Sounds That Are:
RADIO BRENNPUNKT is an experimental Internet streaming radio station playing a mix of unusual music, sound art, live shows, and other fringe programming. We only play recorded sounds that are either in the public domain, Creative Commons licensed, or that we have explicit permission granted from the copyright holder, AKA, a non-exclusive license.
Some of our shows are live, some are pre-programmed, but all are curated. We play a lot of experimental ambient sounds because we like it, but we play a range of sounds.

Some Questions Answered…
Q: Who is Radio Brennpunkt, and if so, how much?
A: We are a non-commercial internet radio station primarily focused on sound art, experimental music, emerging artists, community, and being kind.
Q: What makes you sad?
A: Music and sounds that are released with “all rights reserved”. This makes it harder for us to broadcast these works with “paying the man” who is probably not you, or the artist who made the work.
Q: What makes you happy?
A: Webcasting music and sounds published under some form of Creative Commons licensing that allows non-commerical use of the work. Or if a creator and copyright holder give us explicit permission to use a work without commercial obligations – see next question.
